Rapunzel by Sarah Gibb


Rapunzel by Sarah Gibb

Sarah Gibb's elegant artwork brings Grimms' classic tale alive in this exquisite picture book re-telling that no child's library should be without. Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your golden hair! Beautiful Rapunzel is locked away in a tall, tall tower, visited only by the little creatures of the forest and the witch who has imprisoned her. Until one day a handsome prince passing by on his horse is transfixed by the magical sound of Rapunzel singing to her animal friends, and knows he must reach her...Can true love transform Rapunzel's life for ever?


Praise for The Princess Who Had No Kingdom: 'If you're going to enter the rococo Neverland of poor-but-deserving princesses searching for Mr Right among assorted prince Wrongs, you might as well do it with the skill and aplomb of Ursula Jones and Sarah Gibb.

'An old-fashioned, romantic fairy tale with Crabtree and Evelyn decorative elegance, detailed silhouettes, and bronze gilding. Such outstanding prettiness with substance is rare, but this will win any girlie heart.'
